Engine Preparation Options
unit is being shipped via Air Freight (typically international) the
engine must be free of oil, new engines come with break-in oil in the
pan, so engine must be un-crated and drained of oil and a new filter
installed (that is dry). This requires being sent to Unique Diesel for
processing making it not possible to drop-ship from factory, this is
part of the cost associated with this option.
of timing tab for mechanical engines. The factory cannot modify this
assembly as it's intended for electronic engines. We can optionally add
the mechanical timing tab to the front of the engine's timing cover with
special tooling and have it match TDC for timing with timing lights, We
do this and add the plug in the timing cover to delete the crank sensor
opening. This makes the engine have to come to us instead of being able
to drop-ship. This is part of the expenses figured into the cost of the
